The New Year Brings New Resolutions

Sophie Illman, Reporter

The common trend of the New Year coming is the rush to find New Year’s Resolutions. New Year’s resolutions have become a tradition of goals that people set for themselves for the new year. People also sometimes will give something up or sacrifice something for the new year such as sweets, or soda. 

Junior Carson Brunnbauer says, “I think this year I am going to focus on building new relationships with a lot of kids I have not really met or talked to before. I also think I am going to start going to the gym more, and eating full meals 3 times a day.” 

The most common resolution between many of the students was wanting to work out more, and getting in shape after break. Many other students did not have a New Years Resolution, and were not giving anything up for the new year. Many others wanted to grow as people rather than eliminate something from their life. 

Senior Allison Slaski says, “This coming year for the new year I really would like to become less of a bystander, and begin to speak my voice rather than staying behind the scenes like I usually do. I also would really like to focus on not taking my friends for granted because my last semester with them is coming up so I want to spend as much time with them as I possibly can.”.

Athletes like Senior Madi Tolzman are wanting to bring more attention to their main sport. 

Tolzman says, “This year I really want to focus on volleyball more than ever. Now that college is coming up soon and I will be heading to Eastern Kentucky soon to begin my season I really want to get the most out of the club season as I can before I have to get into the real deal of collegiate level volleyball.”
